Keeping a Lid on Hidin’ Biden

Keeping a Lid on Hidin' Biden

For the eighth time this month, a lid has been called by Team Biden first thing in the morning.

Now, before 2020, nobody had any idea what this “inside baseball” term meant. Then along came old “Lid” Biden, and we’ve all become experts.

The campaign calls a “lid” as a way to let reporters know not to bother turning up for the day because nothing’s gonna happen with the candidate. He won’t be emerging from his basement for a public event, speech, interview or campaign stop.

And Team Joe puts a lid on Hidin’ Biden quite a lot.

In fact, the morning after the death of Leftist icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Team Biden called a lid before nine a.m.

Joe didn’t peek out of his basement to address the death of RBG until Sunday for crap’s sake.  And when he did emerge, he was winded, coughing and looked like hell.

I guess today’s lid isn’t a galloping shock.

Joe not only did a wheezing public appearance on Sunday, yesterday he took his wheezing to Wisconsin.

Now old Joe is all tuckered out.

We are forty-two days away from the election, and Joe Biden cannot handle doing two back-to-back days of public events.

It astonishes me that the Biden campaign thinks keeping a lid on their guy this close to November 3rd is a good idea. Especially when you compare Joe’s wheezing, sputtering campaign to that of President Trump who, just as he did in 2016, is campaigning like the Energizer Bunny.

Keeping a lid on Joe

But what choice does the Biden campaign have, really?

They know Joe Biden is hanging on by a thread. And they sure as hell know that increasing his campaign presence would only make it glitteringly obvious that the old coot is not up to the job of President.

We are a week away from the first scheduled Presidential Debate, and at this point, does anybody think it’s actually going to happen?

I suppose it’s possible the reason the campaign keeps calling a lid on their candidate is because old Joe is spending all this downtime prepping for a debate.

Hahahahaha! Who am I kidding?!

How can you possibly prep someone who will completely forget 99% of what you prepped him on before you break for lunch?

No. They’re keeping a lid on Joe because Joe is on the verge of completely unraveling.

We’ve entered the stage of the election season when most of the people who haven’t been paying attention are now starting to clue in. And they’re going to be wondering where in the hell is Joe Biden?!

There’s only so many campaign events you can pawn off on surrogates.

At some point you have to put the guy at the top of the ticket into the spotlight.

But I don’t see that happening in the 42 days remaining. Do you?

    I really can’t figure what the Democrats are expecting.

    They surely can’t think their ballot stuffing and fraud will overcome the Trump tsunami. Not-there Joe can’t win, so their plan has to be, as they’ve admitted, chaos and destruction?

    Do they imagine some far-fetched hope that the election will be invalidated, or the decision thrown to Congress (whereby we get Pres Pelosi and VP Hillary), or Kamala becomes Queen for a Day?

    The only part I can imagine actually happening is the chaos and disruption. Which nets them… nothing, unless the Dems are like a suicidal person who won’t just kill himself, but has to take out others in his madness.

    They have to have their alternate ready in the wings by now, is there anyone that has disappeared from the public eye for a while? Will it be Pastor Pete? Or will the munchkin (and his checkbook) step in?

    Biden, for real, cannot possibly make it, they have to pull the old switcheroo and they have to manufacture some sort of legitimate reason other than “Oh, my, we think Joe might have dementia” as though they simply had no idea until now. It’s got to be something else.

    And aren’t we about due for the next smear in the parade by now?

    Read somethin a few days ago that predicted Gropey Joe’s handler, DOCTOR Jill, will announce that he’s been exposed to the Chinese gleep and tested positive, meaning he’ll be quarantined for over a month and miss all 3 debates.

    Then just before the election, un milagro! His campaign manager will announce that he fought the bug and beat it, emerging fully recovered just before the election, making him a heroic survivor of the product of Trump pandemic mismanagement.

    AOC will hold forth on her Green New Deal and finish with “Joe Biden! Whattaguy!!”

    So ol’ Gropey Joe has been wheezing? Maybe his fawning press should ask him if he’s lost his sense of taste and smell (all the little girls heave a sigh of relief!), or if he has just lost all sense completely. Sleepy, creepy Joe sounds like he is about to contract a bad case of Debaticus avoidicus. Those IV’s and IM injections don’t seem to last long enough to get him through a brief softball press session, much less a long, vigorous debate with Captain Campaigner. Between the atrial fibrillation, the brain aneurysms, and the very likely multi-infarct dementia, poor Joe could bring new meaning to “kicking off” his campaign at any moment, making way for the pandering princess to step into the role she has already proclaimed in her non-Freudian slip(s).

    Serious questions: Assume Joe pulled an RBG and went to the great union hall in the sky tomorrow. What would be the protocol for Democrats replacing him on the ballot? Would the date of the election be impacted?
